UUFE Modifies Its Gathering Guidelines

UUFE sanctuary with socially distanced chairs

In light of some improvements to local trends, the Re-Opening Task Force recently met and has modified the guidelines as follows:

  • The cap on attendance in the sanctuary is increased from 35 to 45. There will still be social distancing. We will keep several doors slightly open to let in fresh air.
  • Everyone must continue to wear a mask in the building. The speaker is now permitted to unmask while speaking in the pulpit, so long as the speaker is vaccinated and maintains a 12 ft distance to the nearest congregant.
  • Members attending the service in person will again be able to share their personal Joys and Sorrows by coming to the mic. We’re working on tech options for our online participants to share directly as well.


The full guidelines are posted on our website. We will continue to monitor local conditions and adjust the guidelines as appropriate. We appreciate everyone’s ongoing cooperation as we work together to gather safely.
